A clown?

Or an Asshole?

I'm a clown. Not an ass-clown. Just your garden variety clown.

Pretty sure the wife has me classified in the asshole category, I think of myself more of a jackass, however.

OTHER folks are probably gonna have to do this (although I agree, you ARE a clown...in a good way)...will feelings get hurt? Do we care? Of course we do! So, keep it nice. I also think you have to change "asshole" to "doesn't suffer fools" (= "DSF"; I think there is a difference).

I think there have to be a few more categories. "above the fray" is one for sure. "innocent bystander" is another...Now, to avoid really upsetting folks, I'll do ten, folks I've known a LONG while here so they won't be upset, okay? Here goes:

HFlow = clown
Dire = DSF/clown (ie, post recovery--cool?)
CLIFF = DSF
Rob = DSF/clown
Arb = ATF
BD = DSF/clown
SDH = clown/observer
AshesR/McGlone = ATF/IBS
Tell = I can't do it...go ahead...make it democratic.

For anyone that takes it seriously, here you go:

I am first a gnome and secondly, an asshole!

Actually, in "real life", I often preface various commentary with "I don't mean to be an asshole... but... "

For some reason... I don't feel the need to do that here.

hows about windbag for a category?

further classification can be done based on the orifice from which the winds originate.

To paraphrase some of my own lyrics:

There is difference between a clown and a fool

A clown is only joking around, fools truly drool

I was a class clown and proud of it and yes, Mr. Dull, (that was really his name) they are laughing with me not at me...

labels are too limiting and so very subjective

.....what it looks like to me might not be what it looks like to you and if we get into what it looks like to the both of us we're journeying into the realm of generalizations and that is a land fraught with many pitfalls and dangers

OK, I'll play your game...

I may be an overfed long haired leaping gnome.

I guess I may be a reformed asshole who has become a clown, who suffers occasional relapses that fill me with regret which makes it hard to be clown for everyone knows there ain't too much sadder than the tears of a clown.

I don't know. Hell, I told you labels are just too limiting. Trying to label oneself is like herding cats, and trying to label anyone else is both unwise and counter-productive.

So, I guess I won't play your little game after all. What I will do however is extend a wish of Peace to ALL who assemble here.

If you get confused just listen to the music play.

PLAY MUSIC

A fellow gnome! Cheers!

Regarding labels and passing judgment: it says more about the person doing the judging and labeling than about the person who is being pigeon-holed.

But there is a lot to be said about the tone of voice used while judging and/or labeling. There are many different ways to say "hippie" and I've been on the receiving end of many of them even though I was born in the 80's???

I used to be a clown, it got me nowhere. Now that I am an asshole, it still gets me nowhere, but I can have more fun. Clowns are too serious.
